Anyone working with diamonds needs to constanty
update oneself on all aspects of the industry. New techniques for both the
production and identification of synthetic diamonds and treatments is
constantly developing, the standards for grading varies depending on
who you ask and there is a need to evaluate the certificates issued
by different labs. There is also a growing demand for ethical and
environmentaly friendly produced diamonds and gemstones.
Topics concerning diamonds and related
developments will be touched upon by several of our speakers. Synthetics will be more

presentation on how a national assay office may work not only for
precious metals but also for the testing of diamonds and other precious stones by Peters Brangulis from the Latvian Assay Office.
